Badlands Authors Exhibition Highlights
Badlands artists Cauleen Smith, Ian Cheng, Martine Syms, and Rachel Rose are all included in exhibitions this spring. Ian's first U.S. museum solo presentation is up now at MoMA PS1 until September 25th showcasing his simulation series, Emissaries. Andrea K. Scott recently wrote about it for The New Yorker calling it "a waking dream of a show,"
And The Sandy Cat author Rachel Rose's new video piece, Lake Valley, is on view as part of the Venice Biennale. The New York Times named it as one of their ten best things they saw at the Biennale, saying it "leaves the audience with a sense of unease that feels at once fresh and familiar,"
Cauleen Smith, also a Badlands filemaker, is included in the Whitney Biennial on view through June 11th showcasing a series of processional banners that "stem in part from the artist’s sense of disgust and fatigue when confronted with video after video offering evidence of police violence against Black people,"
